The annual soybean and cotton field day at the Edisto Station was once a part of an overall fall field day, but due to large crowds in recent years, it is now held separately from the corn and peanut field day, which was held in September.
The field day will allow growers to see results of several cotton and soybean field tests and get a chance to interact with scientists from the Clemson staff at Edisto Station.
